The Society’s members’ contributions to the community have been both varied and focused. They have advocated for healthcare advances, PPE production juring the Covid-19 crisis, childcare for providers during the Covid-19 crisis, organized emergency medical hotlines and previously led medical missions abroad. We have lobbied for improvements in public health including firearm injury prevention, telemedine parity, improved vaccine databases, lead testing in schools, better nutrition in public schools and universal access to health care.
While the Society’s activities have evolved over time in response to advances and challenges in health care delivery, its core mission has remained the same: to be a powerful voice and political advocate for physicians and patients at the local, state, and federal levels. The Society acts as a champion for King County doctors, in order to support and strengthen the physician-patient relationship and promote the health and welfare of King County citizens. The Society will continue to serve these goals as it helps members navigate health care reform and the shifting medical landscape.
